Oliver review

The School Library Journal has nice things to say about my next book, Oliver and His Alligator. Here are some highlights:


As the first day of school approaches, Oliver, a timid boy dressed in an oversize woolly sweater, isn’t feeling very brave. He takes an alligator to school with him “in case things get rough.”  ... The gentle pastel illustrations are infused with appealing school-related details and add humor to the story. ... Young readers who are about to begin school will identify with the hero of this quirky story.

Hi paul! I just wanted to stop by and say I was over the moon when I took my daughter to our local libraries story time (i live in Des Moines, Iowa) and found that they were featuring your book Perfectly Percy. What a GREAT book it was!

No she hasn't, which is just a shame. I will need to check our library for it. Or, do you have a site for purchasing your books specifically?

Ordering from a neighborhood bookstore is good for everybody, but try this link if you can't:
